I was at my desk with my RX100 in front of me. As the camera is still new to me, I thought I’d do some sharpness and focusing testing using various objects laying around.
All the images I shot in JPEG format and at 10 mega-pixels- using the camera’s default JPEG image setting.
The auto focus is good but I use the DMF focus setting (direct manual focus). This allows the camera to auto focus for me but allows me to turn a dial to manually adjust focus and bring it to where I exactly want it.
The RX100 can take very sharp photos- as long as the focus is where you want it to be.
All that beautiful golden colour you see is actually a reflection of a lemon on my windowsill.
Shooting up close requires a steady hand- Any wobble leaning forward and backwards as I breath keeps bringing the focus in and out of where I’d want it to be. Timing is everything in photography.
